I began to post to my blog yesterday but I once again was trying to do too much and so I am behind! OUCH!
Fundraiser was a success. But come Friday, I was beyond exhausted and could only manage to function enough to work. Barely keep my eyes open. Only to remember my son had a performance that night so I didnt get home til 9pm!
Then ofcourse, I couldnt sleep. Forcing myself into bed at 11 because I knew I had to be up early to tour the culinary school the next day. Which I did.
anyway.. ( :/ )
Total cost for the Baking and Pastry art program is $26,436

The ride up... a total different story... Rained from the moment I left... then as we approached the Donner Summit, it began to snow... had to pull over and pay a nice chunk of change to get chains so we could ride 30 mph through the slick and snowy roads... just as we are coming out of the summit, SPIN OUT! omg I was so scared! luckily, no one hit us and we just missed the side rail! After being on the road for 6 1/2 hrs... we made it!
We ended up at this club called Aura.. which was cool.. earlier everyone but me gambled since Im in no why shape or form a gambler... so what did i do... drink! lol
Club was cool... it was snowing out and all was right in the night!
Sorry to rush this entry as they are all ready to go and Im sitting here holding everyone up!
Will post more details of todays ventures later this evening as we get ready for another night out in Reno!

Today started out dragging, I was soooo tired from no sleep. But, cake must be baked.
By the time work came, I was good. Sun shining, clear skies, beautiful day!
Then lunch happened. I'll leave it at that, there's no point in details at this time.
But now, 18 minutes left in the work day, I'm feeling good again. Stress free, happy, eager and ready to start my 4 day weekend!
Got a cake to finish tonight if not tomorrow... pack, clean, relax....
Reno this weekend.. Hopefully Ill post a blog or two!

Ok so not very appealing in the pot but I had my mom make rice and you serve them over rice and i tasted a bit before I left to deliver the goods and YUM o YUM they were goooood! Spicy but not overwhelming, rich and flavorful, beefy and just plain goodness! I hope my dad enjoyed them and if they didn't shake his cold, I know he felt good from all the love that was poured into this dish!
Sunday was my lazy day. As much as I wanted to get done and get motivated to do... I just couldn't. I didn't even put make-up on!
I took a shower, finally shampooed my hair with the good stuff (btw, my hair smells WUUUUN-DAH-FUL now! Thx NIKKI!! xoxo)
grabbed my sketch book, reading book and french book and ended up laid out on the couch with them all sitting next to me! *lol*
I didn't move until half way through the Academy Awards when I realized I was starving!! Got up and went to get some Chinese n came back to grub, finish the awards, watch Barbara Walters last special and crashed in the bed only to fall asleep an hour later from a pounding headache...
What a weekend, huh!
Thus begins yet another work week, Cake start up again this week and another weekend get away!
**HAPPY MONDAY LOVES!**
